Reality Romance: a 'competitive' game
Reality Romance sets a number of heroes in competition for one heroine in a reality TV show setting. Each hero is trying to create the best impression on the heroine and on the audience in order to be the one to win the show and get the girl. I've called this a competitive game, but it is important to remember that the heroes are the ones competing; the players should be cooperating to create a story about a competition.
Reality Romance is structured as a series of scenes in which each hero in turn shares screen time with the heroine. The heroine and the audience are concerned with the overall dramatic plot surrounding the heroine, and each hero will interact with that plot according to his own abilities. Each scene will follow on from the one before, with the hero 'replaced' with the next hero. The fiction preserved by the production team is that the heroes are interchangeable. Each player must pick up the narrative where it left off at the end of one scene, and interact with the GM to advance the heroine's plot, the hero's own issues, and the connection to the heroine. A hero who is successful can earn Ratings Points which will decide who is the overall winner. In this play style, all heroes have as their obstacle 'romantic rivals' to represent the fact that they are competing for the same heroine.
